By Land or Sea: Omega Aquatics Amphibian Fins are a Diver's DreamMarch 20, 2008
It's one of those things that makes you wonder, "Wow, why didn't someone think of this sooner?" I'm talking about Omega Aquatics revolutionary-- and yet revolutionarily common-sense-- new Amphibian dynamic diving fins. The Amphibian "flip fins" are designed to be put on before entering the water, and make walking and climbing boat ladders as easy as doing it finless! It's all about the Aqua-Hinge mechanism: heavy duty springs push the soft blade webbing up to ride gently against the shin while strutting mammalian style, then once in the water the Amphibian diving fins kick in, literally: naturally kicking feet in the water pushes the fin down and locks it into swimming position. Pushing on the release lever upon exiting the water flips the fins back up.
Don't mistake Amphibian scuba fins for being just another clever creation-- these flippers are much more. The Amphibian is a high-performance scuba fin that combines power and safety that no other fin can match. Featuring a central web configuration, Amphibian Dynamic Scuba Fins increase propulsion and reduce load required for sustained kicking. Slippery rocks are no match for the Amphibian; the strong rubber grippers on the soles of these versatile fins ensure your stability. Trainers' jobs become infinitely easier, and rescue and military operations are made immeasurably safer and more efficient, making these flippers the favorite of pros and recreational divers alike.
If you enjoy looking like a big doofus as you trek across the beach in bungling 4-foot strides, sending sand flying everywhere and entertaining the youngsters, then by all means, you should pass on these Dynamic Scuba Fins and stick with your good old fashioned duck fins. If, on the other hand, you're tired of tripping over your flippers and clumsily struggling to get in and out of the water, then swim on over to OpticsPlanet and check out Amphibian flippers and all the other great offerings from Omega Aquatics!
